Tyler Formal Gardens are open to the public year-round. Visitors are encouraged to stroll through the four-tiered gardens, and enjoy the early twentieth-century design, including stunning stonewalls and dramatic double staircases, various plantings, formal hedging, marble fountains, and Stella Tyler’s bronze statuary. Garden brochures are available for self-guided tours. Guided tours can be arranged by appointment.
Tyler Formal Gardens were built in the early 1930s on a hilltop overlooking Neshaminy Creek in Newtown, Bucks County. They served as an “outdoor parlor” for George F. and Stella Tyler, original owners of the property. The gardens currently reflect early twentieth-century horticulture and design, and were originally influenced by larger French and Italian gardens.
